Inspirock Rating:
2.4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web
Legend has it that Black Stupa (That Dam) contains a dormant, seven-headed serpent, who guarded the city against the Siamese invasion in the 19th century. Located at the center of a roundabout, the monument is believed to have been built in the 16th century, and was once plated in gold before looters took its precious exterior, leaving it with the bare brick you see today. Stop by for a look at the stupa on your way to one of the nearby restaurants and bars.

  • The black stupa is in the middle of the attractions in town, where you normally walk from one to another. There is a good chance, that you will see it. But there is nothing interesting to see there.

  • The dam that is not great even if it is marked as a see. It is in a place all calm and there ' plenty of wine autour stores. The stupa deserves a shot of weed killer to find glory in my opinion
